Fun, action, English: vacation in Wismar
Follow in the footsteps of notorious pirate Klaus Störtebeker and learn English at the same time: our language camp in Wismar is just the thing for adventurous kids. Together we’ll discover this beautiful Hanseatic city and the nearby coast. And we guarantee plenty of fun and action at our spacious accommodation.
English learning made easy with the Berlitz method
Whether it’s doing projects on topics kids are passionate about, exciting debates or writing a camp diary, the Wismar Berlitz Camp is all about speaking freely and expanding vocabulary. And fun is the main feature!
Our Wismar language camp combines fun with learning English, all according to our tried-and-tested Berlitz method: learning by speaking. Our language training includes:
- 4 x 45-minute lessons five mornings a week,
- Learning in small groups to encourage active speaking.
Our experienced counselors motivate kids and teens to speak the camp language as much as possible – both in class and during the leisure program in the afternoons.
Learning can be fun: fun and action at the Wismar holiday camp
At Wismar language camp, our motto is "learning by doing". After the morning language classes, we continue speaking in the foreign language. Together, we get to do a whole bunch of great activities: scavenger hunts, excursions, and exciting team challenges. Our program is versatile and fun. We only use German for safety instructions or in emergency situations.
Afternoons are filled with lots of action, no matter the weather
Whether it’s sunny, windy or rainy: there’s always something going on at the Wismar holiday camp in the afternoons: those who like sports can let off steam by playing volleyball or soccer. Big and small artists alike can make clothes or friendship bracelets. Here’s an example of activities, depending on the location and season:
- Playing sports, for example gymnastics, ball games, and climbing
- Playing and relaxing in the pool,
- Fun on an exciting sailing trip,
- Day trip to the state capital Schwerin,
- Animal watching in the Wismar animal park,
- Tasting typical local food together,
- Designing new board games and trying them out with friends, or
- Shooting videos and watching them together.
Evenings together round the campfire or indoors
After a day packed full of fun and action, we make ourselves comfortable. Firstly, we eat dinner together, then we warm up round the campfire, have a quiz night, or a camp party – depending on the mood and the weather. Evening activities may include:
- Toasting marshmallows and baking campfire bread over the campfire,
- Hosting music competitions and game nights,
- Spending free time with friends new and old.
Note: Actual activities offered may vary depending on weather and availability.

Fun and variety at the Wismar Youth Hostel
There’s no room for boredom here: with its central location, the Wismar Youth Hostel offers plenty of space to run around and play. Athletic kids will love the multi-purpose outdoor space with a beach volleyball court, soccer field, basketball hoops, and table tennis tables. Inside, we can battle it out at the foosball table or make ourselves comfortable in the reading corner or TV room. There’s also enough space for creative activities such as drawing comics or duct tape art. The youth hostel is in a beautiful old brick building. Girls and boys will be accommodated separately in bright, cozy shared rooms.
Wismar: visiting Störtebeker’s hometown
Wismar still has many reminders of the time when Klaus Störtebeker was alive – the notorious pirate who is said to have wreaked havoc on the North and Baltic Seas. For centuries, much has remained almost unchanged in the medieval Hanseatic city. Because of this, Wismar has been named a UNESCO World Heritage city. Visitors can especially feel like they’re in a bygone era when strolling through the alleyways and past patrician houses, warehouses, and counting houses. The tranquil harbor also has maritime flair.

Arrival day overview: We’ll be welcoming all parents and kids on the first day of camp. The exact time for arrival can be found in the travel information sent to all participants before the camp starts. The meet-and-greet allows our Berlitz team and the participants to get to know one another. Parents can ask the team any questions they may have. In our welcome package, kids and teens will receive a practical gym bag, lunch box, and notebook. After a short placement, the camp really gets going.
Departure information: After a joint farewell for both counselors and participants, parents will be able to pick up their kids. Parents can find the exact pick-up time in the travel documents sent out before camp starts. Please arrive on time, as our counselors will also be leaving that day. The certificate of participation and Camp Magazine & Co. will be sent to the kids afterwards.
